Two "tabs" open, two different realities?

Two "tabs" open, two different realities? Can't Post

Just curious (not "Curious"):

If I have Torn open in two tabs (using IE 7) or two different browser windows (using anything you like), am I in two separate realities? When I click on "who's online" in each tab (or window) am I really seeing two different realities?

Or does the big Torn server know what I'm doing somehow?

This is not an important question, but just something I've been wondering about. I do tend to open Torn in two tabs occasionally when I am trying to reply to a complicated post and/or want to reference another answer in the same thread without messing with my open "post reply" box, etc.

I got to thinking it's a good illustration of alternate universe theory.

Unless I'm wrong.

"And we must all bring Provisions."
"Bring what ?"
"Things to eat."
"Oh!" said Pooh happily. "I thought you said Provisions.
I'll go and tell them." And he stumped off.

I have multiple tabs open frequently... [In reply to] Can't Post

everytime I'm composing a trivia thread and often when composing other threads. And sometimes because I have multiple threads open while multitasking, I go to TORn and realize it's up in one of my other tabs because I forgot about it.
